Calretinin is a calcium-binding protein related to calbindin-D28k; both are present in different though overlapping sets of neurons in brains of birds and mammals. We describe in detail the pattern of calretinin immunoreactivity in the rat brain. As in chick brain, calretinin immunoreactivity is abundant in various sensory pathways (particularly certain(More)
Calretinin and calbindin-D28k are homologous calcium-binding proteins, each present in a variety of neurons in the brain. Their distributions in the rat brain have been compared at the cellular level to determine whether they tend to occur in the same or in different cells, and to determine whether calbindin-positive cells show any common features once(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) is thought to be the mediator of fibrosis in liver, glomerular, and pulmonary fibrosis. This study investigated the expression of TGF-beta 1 precursor (beta 1 latency-associated peptide), latent TGF-beta 1-binding protein (LTBP), and TGF-beta 1 messenger RNA (mRNA) in chronic pancreatitis.

Calbindin-D28K was immunohistochemically localized in myenteric and submucosal plexuses throughout the rat intestine. Calbindin-D28K immunoreactivity was found in about half of myenteric neurons and in more than 90% of submucosal neurons. Calbindin-D28K was also observed in nerve processes running inside ganglia, muscle layers and lamina propria. No(More)
Calbindin 28K and calretinin are very similar calcium binding proteins which are both present in the central nervous system (CNS). They respectively bind 4 and 5 Ca++ ions. We have compared by immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization their localisation in the brain and the retina. The two proteins are generally expressed in different neurons with a(More)
Pterin-4a-carbinolamine dehydratase (PCD) is a bifunctional protein also known as DCoH (dimerization co-factor of hepatocyte nuclear factor 1 (HNF1)). PCD/DCoH modulates the DNA binding specificity of HNF1, thus acting on its transcriptional activity. In addition, it participates in the recycling of tetrahydrobiopterin (BH(4)), an essential cofactor of(More)
